In a land there's a town

‘In a land there’s a town…’ is a series of mixed media works on old wooden boards and desks, which were partly whitewashed before adding collaged imagery and paint. What was left of the original, found board, became central to the composition, and my intention was to add as little as possible – just enough to make it sing a quiet song. The title is a reference to a song by Tom Waits in which an old man reflects on what he has held dear through his life, and these works attempt to give those memories a visual solidity – the memories of a place where one’s dreams are fulfilled and lost, and held within its walls.
